Rated 5 out of 5 by OneXBigTom Feel like a teenager
I feel like I am a teenager again in the late 70s early 80s with the big booming speaker systems that had your ceiling lights fall off the ceiling. Well those days are back with this system. If you are looking for a system that brings you back to when you was a kid with the big bass sound then this is the system for you. If you are looking for crisp clear mid-range and highs go back to the little surround sound speakers with the little 8 inch single sub woofer. This system is loud and is fully bass driven. Want to hear Queen "We will rock you" with thunder driving bass again? get this system.
As for hookups. It has 2 RCA audio inputs for your external devices like a tape deck, record player, or vcr. Another thing I love is the Blue Tooth. I am sitting here now on my laptop listening to my new stereo from my laptop with no wires going to the stereo. It has 2 USB ports for your MP3 player or flash drive. One of those IPhone people that use their phone for music? Hook up to this via Bluetooth and rock away.
For $1000.00 system I think this thing Rocks and I am thrilled with it. Been awhile since I had a stereo make me smile and grin.

Rated 2 out of 5 Where's the Mid Range?
The Shake5 is loud but it has the worst quality sound of any stereo I have ever owned.
There is No, None, Zilch Mid Range sound.
It doesn't even have any mid range speakers in those two big boxes.
The so-called Cone tweeters are either of very poor quality or they must have forgot to put them in my pair of speakers because mid to high range frequency sound is non existent.That's No exaggeration!
The sound at low to mid volume is as flat as flat sound can be.
I expected the shake5 to have a crisp clear sound but it doesn't even come close and you can take that statement to the bank. It puts out a lifeless sound.
Its 3 band equalizer gives very basic adjustments =( low -6 to +6) (Mid low-6 to+6) High (low-6 to +6) It is hopeless & does nothing to brighten up the sound.
Any device that is plugged into the Aux audio input (TV, Game console, Turntable etc.) has its sound restricted for some reason, example Volume on shake5 needs to be at 45 (it only goes to 50) to hear Sony Bravia TV, it's the same with any other device too.
In my opinion Sony should do a recall on the Shake5 & fix these things so that they give us the quality sound that we paid for & were told we would get by the Sony adverting for this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DIXON SUPERBLY OUTSTANDING!!!
I just recently purchased the 2400 watts shake 5 system, and I am VERY pleased with the main unit and speakers. The craftsmanship and manufacturing of this product is SUPERBLY OUTSTANDING!!!
There is nothing cheap or second rate about this unit.
I was a little reluctant about buying this product because of its capability to have an extremely high volume which could be annoying to your neighbors, and bring the police to your residence, but surprisingly, the volume can be adjusted from a very low tone to the most desired high frequency, which only a fool or inconsiderate person would dare to try.
The sound is GREAT and clear, and I'm sure that I will greatly enjoy this product for many years to come, and be envied by relatives, friends, and acquaintances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tobi Best thing ever
I purchased this system for my husband for Christmas and it was everything as described and more. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great stereo system with DJ effects. I love how it lights up as well and the sound is just awesome.
